Limit of 8 people in our group. Social distancing measures will be in place.

Comments from Past Participants: nov 2018ArtVocabRetreat

“Julie and Sam,

Thank you so much for hosting a lovely, restful weekend at King’s Fold. I feel like I did a lot of creating... poetry and journaling and art. Through that, God and I also did a lot of soul work. I really appreciate how you two tie both together so the act of creating becomes an act of worship and an act of healing....For ourselves and others.” - M. Bell, Participant“

Julie is a gentle teacher and can help anyone with experience in the arts, or someone who is just beginning to let art into their lives. Julie also writes poetry and songs and uses those as part of the weekend retreat to enhance the creative process. She teaches respectfully, knowing that we all are creative in some form or another, and that it is to God that our creativity is lifted first.”- H. Seargeant, Participant
